SRILA PRABHUPADA 40TH ANNIVERSARY DISAPPEARANCE DAY

SRILA PRABHUPADA 40TH ANNIVERSARY DISAPPEARANCE DAY
OCTOBER 23, 2017 / 6:00 - 9:00PM

Although Srila Prabhupada is no longer physically with us, on the spiritual platform he is very much present. He is present in his deity form, in his books and through his instructions. His mercy is available to all those who seek it.

Srila Prabhupada departed from this world on November 14, 1977 in Vrindavan, India. One would not usually celebrate the disappearance day of a person, especially one so loved and revered as Srila Prabhupada. However, the departure of a pure Vaishnava gives cause for jubilation because he returns to his eternal service at Krishna's lotus feet in Goloka Vrindavan, the spiritual world.

As Srila Prabhupada explains, the appearance and disappearance of the Lord and his pure representatives from this world is a cause for celebration. While there is no need to lament the disappearance of the Lord's pure nitya-siddha representative, at the same time the devotees feel great pangs of separation due to the manifest physical absence of His Divine Grace.

Join us on this auspicious occasion of the disappearance of our Founder Acarya at 26 Second Avenue, on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 6:00pm. We will hear from senior disciples of Srila Prabhupada, and a feast will be served.
